I still believe in either Intel Smackover X58 or the EVGA.

It fits fine, but we had some clearance issues with that combo in an Antec 900 (I guess EVGA puts the CPU socket a bit higher than some other manufacturers? It's easily solvable by cutting a little plastic bit off the top of the heatsink). If you're in a full tower though you should have no issues whatsoever.

I have Thermaltake Armor Junior case. EVGA has $15 disscount today on E758-A1($299-$15-$20=$265), do you think it's jump on deal?
Any other opinions?
